Tokyo ESP is based on Hajime Segawa’s (Ga-Rei-Zero) manga of the same name. The series was directed by Shigehito Takayanagi (Dagashi Kashi, The World God Only Knows) at Xebec. Hideyuki Kurata took charge of series composition, while Shintetsu Takiyama (Nyaruko: Crawling With Love!) provided character designs.

Funimation describes the show as follows:

Rinka is a normal Tokyo high-schooler with big dreams and a small income. She works a part-time job to support her and her single dad, but she yearns for the day she’ll get to loosen the strings on her pocketbook. Her ordinary life takes a turn for the extraordinary when she witnesses a penguin and a school of fish flying through the air. After one of the fish seems to pass through her, she wakes up in her apartment building with no clothes on and no memory of the strange phenomenon save for a mysterious ability to pass through solid objects. With her newfound powers, Rinka is about to learn just how transparent the world can be.

Tokyo ESP aired in the summer 2014 broadcast season. Funimation will release the series on DVD and Blu-Ray on February 23.
